Olbermann Tagged Liberal by Leftist Media Watchdog
You know you're liberal if even a liberal media watchdog group calls you liberal -- that is, unless you're MSNBC's Keith Olbermann. While Olbermann denies displaying a liberal bias on his show, once describing himself politically as "correct" and "neutral," media analyst Paul Waldman of the far left Media Matters for America, a frequent source of material for Olbermann, sees it differently. On Tuesday's Scarborough Country on MSNBC, during a discussion of whether there is a "vast left-wing conspiracy" against Bill O'Reilly and Fox News, Waldman proclaimed that Olbermann's show is the "only liberal show" on cable news. Below is a complete transcript of Waldman's comment from the December 5 Scarborough Country:
Paul Waldman, Media Matters for America: "You know, before, Joe, you said something about how there are liberal shows on cable news, too. Well, I can only think of one, and that's Keith Olbermann's. Every single other host that I know of is either a neutral person, like Wolf Blitzer, or is a conservative. There are probably five or six or maybe even more conservatives for every liberal who has their own show on cable news."
